# How can you increase the amount of kinetic energy in a small ball of clay you are throwing to a friend?

you can increase the amount of kinetic energy by increasing the mass and the velocity..

### How are temperature and thermal energy alike?

If you increase temperature you increase thermal energy. If you double the amount you have the temperature does not change but the thermal energy does. Temperature and thermal energy are the same since they both use kinetic energy. Temperature uses the thermal energy when the heat measures the average of the kinetic energy. The thermal energy uses the kinetic energy, when it's averged together with the kinetic enery and the others to make the thermal…

### How fast molecules are moving is.....?

How fast molecules are moving is dependent on the amount of kinetic energy the particle posses. The more kinetic (movement) energy the particle has, the fast it is moving. Also keep in mind that temperature is the average kinetic energy of a bunch of molecules (for instance, your coffee this morning). As your heat up your coffee, you are increasing the amount of movement occurring within the mug, while cooling it down will slow the…

### How kinetic energy related to heat energy?

Heat energy is directly related to kinetic energy. as we increase heat the speed of molecules increases and this increase of speed results from an increase in kinetic energy of molecules.because by increasing heat energy ew are actually increasing the temperature which in turn increases the speed or velocity of the molecules thats why their kinetic energy increases.

### Objects with a small amount of kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy is the energy an object has due to its mass and its velocity. Kinetic energy is calculated with the equation: Ek = ½ mv² Since kinetic energy is proportional to mass and velocity, any object moving very slowly has a small amount of kinetic energy. Also, any very small object normally has a small amount of kinetic energy. For example, a soccer ball rolling down a hill might have a relatively small amount…

### Do changes in velocity and mass have the same effect on kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy is equal to one half the mass times the square of the velocity. Thus, changes in velocity and mass do not have the same effect on kinetic energy. If you increase the mass by a factor of 10 at the same velocity, you increase the kinetic energy by a factor of 10. However, if you increase the velocity by a factor of 10 at the same mass, you increase the kinetic energy by…

### How does increasing the amount of stored energy affect the amount of kinetic energy when an object is released?

The "stored energy", or potential energy, will be converted to kinetic energy. Example: Let U = gravitational potential energy, K = kinetic energy U = mgh, where m is mass, g is theaccelerationdue to gravity, h is the height (there are other types of potential energy, but this is the most common example) K = 1/2mv2, where v is velocity Set U equal to K, because that potential energy will be converted to kinetic energy…
